PART II: PROJECT – SNACK IDEAS
Directions: Our eating habits are learned at a very young age. With busy lifestyles and the availability of convenient unhealthy snacks, sometimes it is hard for parents to focus on providing their children with the healthiest choices.
Create 10 snack ideas for children ages 2 and up that are quick, convenient, and healthy. Your snack ideas must total at least two pages in length, double-spaced, Times New Roman, and 12-point font. Please be sure to cite any references used.
